West Brom manager Steve Clarke has acknowledged he would have conducted himself differently to the way QPR have handled the Peter Odemwingie transfer saga.

Odemwingie was so convinced he was moving to Rangers on deadline day that he turned up at Loftus Road without permission from the Baggies. But no transfer went through as a player-plus-cash deal - believed to involve Junior Hoilett - could not be agreed with QPR.

Clarke said: "We spoke about the possibility of doing a player-plus-cash deal. I won't speak about the player. I won't speak about players from other clubs but it didn't happen and there was no way Peter could go out of the building without us having a replacement. I think it's fair to say the time we realised we couldn't get a replacement for Peter there was no point in letting him go out of the building."
